You can do an actual merge using detached HEAD:
$ git checkout --detach upstream-branch
$ git merge topic-branch
This has the benefit that if there are conflicts, you can resolve them
here and commit the result so that rerere can auto-resolve them later.
Are you looking for something that can be run in a bare repo?
